Ministering at East Gate Village has been a blessing right from the start. I have been here going on 7 years. The Lord is doing a might work here. We have seen continued salvations, healings, and the joy of the Lord. Those who are bed-fast are asking me to come to their rooms and pray with them. It is an honor and a privilege to be called their "Pastor".

The definition of a nursing home is:
A nursing home, convalescent home, skilled nursing facility, care home, rest home or intermediate care provides a type of residential care. It is a place of residence for people who require continual nursing care and have significant difficulty coping with the required activities of daily living. Nursing aides and skilled nurses are usually available 24 hours a day. Residents include the elderly and younger adults with physical or mental disabilities.
Imagine a facility where youth all the way through the elderly are cared for 24/7 for both physical and mental issues.
These are the places I call "home." Places where I see and experience the power of God. Places where residents, staff, friends, and family begin to touch and experience the reality of a loving God.

Strengthening The Saved - Saving The Lost
Wednesday, September 7, 2016
As I entered the facility this morning I saw 5 residents sleeping in front of a TV. No one was in the activities office and the workers that I did see were very, very busy doing a variety of other things. I'm sure the last thing they were thinking of was a "volunteer" coming in to their facility to do something with their residents. Yet, every resident and every employee has needs. There are many possibilities, through God, to meet those needs. I turned off the TV and started gathering residents myself. I let them know that I loved them and God loved them. We began to sing about the goodness and power of God. The atmosphere began to change. Other residents heard the music in their rooms and came out. Then staff started coming in. (The love of God will draw people no matter what their situation might be.) I laid hands on the sick, residents and staff, believing they will recover.
At times when it seems there is no help to be found, there is always help - God! Remember, you and God is always a majority. Now, it's on to Fort Gibson.

We had just finished singing a hymn when a woman yield out, "I have a testimony." She proceeded to tell us that for the last 3 months both legs from the knees down had been paralyzed. She's beginning to get feeling in her legs and said the power of God touched her. She said, "I'm going to walk out of here!" That brought on a lot of shouting and rejoicing. GOD IS GOOD.

This mornings service was a great way to start off the month. We've been putting on the armour of God. Today we put on the belt of Truth. Hands were in the air, praising our Lord, as we learned how to strap on the belt of Truth and be led by the Spirit of God. He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
